Erica Chase Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience edition, is a long form interview series featuring actors and TV personalities discussing their roles and shows as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys.In this episode host Kylie Hodges interviews Erica Chase.

Erica’s love of music began at the age of 7. “Something just clicked for me when I listened to music and I knew I had to learn to play the guitar,” she said. “It sparked something in me.” That spark very nearly got extinguished when, while still in grade school, Erica got up the courage to audition for the school play. The teacher stopped her halfway through the song and gave her some harsh criticism that took an emotional toll on the 7-year-old. “She told me that I couldn’t sing; that I didn’t have a good enough voice. And I believed her. That belief stayed with me for a long time.” Erica turned away from her true calling for years; choosing instead to devote her energies to sports. Music, though, was always in the back of her mind, never fully loosening its grasp on her.

Years later, Erica began her last semester at Pitzer College thinking that she would use her English degree and become a teacher. It was the path she thought she should take, even though her heart was not invested. However, when a teaching program geared towards education in inner city schools rejected her, life became suddenly unclear. Though she fronted her college band, both singing and playing guitar, and was passionate about music, she admittedly didn’t know the first thing about the music industry. That was until Erica managed to arrange a phone call with a prominent artist manager/producer who would later play a key role in Erica’s life and career. This call had a profound effect on Erica; it gave her something she had not felt about having a music career: hope and encouragement.

In a bizarre twist of fate less than 24 hours later, while riding her bicycle to meet a friend for lunch Erica was hit by a truck and nearly killed. She was transferred to a flight-for-life helicopter. “Everything went completely white,” says Chase of that day. “I’ve heard other near death stories where people talk about the white light, but to actually see it is a visual I will never shake.” It was a big wake up call for Erica; she had a new appreciation for the fragility of life and realized she had to follow her true passion for music. “I suddenly realized how tenuous our grasp on life is – how impermanent we are. That’s the moment I knew I had to put everything else aside and pursue my music, chase my dreams, and live every moment like it’s my last and hopefully I will inspire others to never give up on their own dreams.”

Now after investing relentless time developing her own sound, Erica is ready to meet the world.

Alex G began posting videos of herself singing song covers in 2010, and her YouTube channel quickly became one of the fastest-growing on the massive site. As of September 2015, Alex’s page has over 194 million views and nearly 1.5 million subscribers, with an additional 590k followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

In exploring her own story, Alex began to discover her voice. As she discovered the power of that voice, she discovered the power of giving a voice to others, to lending her voice to humanity, rather than to the pursuit of being an “unattainable superstar.” A voice is exactly what Alex gave to five of her fans on her new concept EP, Share Your Story, available to the masses on Friday, October 30.

The EP marks a massive shift in Alex’s personal journey and artistic presence in the industry. Each song on the EP is based on a fan’s personal story. Out of 1,300 submissions, five people have name-titled tracks on the EP: Charlotte, Muriel, Ben, Royston, and Alena.

Sons Of Serendip Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s The Concert Experience is a long form interview series featuring musicians and music personality discussing their media and tours as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Daniel Wiess, and Kevin John interviews the band Sons Of Serendip.

The Sons of Serendip is a musical group of four friends, who through a series of serendipitous events, came together in graduate school at Boston University. Micah Christian, a teacher from Randolph, MA, is the lead vocalist of the group; Cordaro Rodriguez, an attorney from Charlotte, NC, is the pianist and guitarist; Kendall Ramseur, a performer and cello instructor from Charlotte, NC, is the cellist and vocalist; and Mason Morton, who is a teacher from Atlanta, GA, is the harpist for the quartet. They have each been playing their instruments since childhood, but recently, they came together to begin what they hope will be a long beautiful journey of creating music that touches people’s hearts. They hope that their music will resonate deeply with listeners and that, in some way, it will make their lives a little better – even if just for a moment. 

Micah Christian, a native of Randolph, MA, became interested in music at an early age. However, it wasn’t until his senior year of high school, when he earned a solo in the Massachusetts Southeastern District Senior Choir, that he realized his potential as a musician. As a freshman at Stonehill College, he decided to follow his passion for music. For the next five years, he spent his summers performing with the Cape Cod-based a cappella group, Hyannis Sound, and his love for music deepened. During those years, he also fell in love with his best friend from college and they were married in 2010. Together they have focused their life on helping to build a better world. Micah has volunteered for a year in Honduras, and a month in Calcutta, India with Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity. Also, in 2013, after graduating from Boston University with an M.Div., he and his wife volunteered in a rural community in northern Peru for another year. As a member of Sons of Serendip, Micah hopes to inspire others to use their gifts to spread love and build a better world.

Kendall Ramseur is a singer-songwriter, composer and cellist from Charlotte, North Carolina. Kendall’s relationship with music began at age seven when his father purchased an upright piano for the family.  While excelling in his piano studies, Kendall found his instrument of choice at age ten, “My orchestra teacher laid all the instruments on the floor in the class room and told each student to stand by the instrument of their choice… the cello really sparked something in me”. Kendall chose the cello that day, and one of the ways he would express himself chose him. He then went on to receive his Bachelors and Masters Degrees from the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and Boston University, in Music Performance with a concentration in cello. As a member of Sons of Serendip, his hope is that this quartet will inspire others through their music, creating an experience one will never forget.

Mason Morton was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He lived in a house full of love and encouragement with his mom, an aunt, and his grandparents. He always admired his grandparents, and he says he learned his drive, determination, and taste in music from them. His love of music was instilled early on, and quickly became a passion for him. Mason began to see his own potential with the help of his harp mentors: principal harpist of the Atlanta Ballet, Nella Rigell and former principal harpist of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Ann Hobson Pilot. It was their combined confidence in Mason that gave him the courage to believe in himself. After completing his graduate studies at Boston University, he is thrilled his musical journey has led him to be a member of the Sons of Serendip. It is here he has gained the brotherhood he has longed for. As a member of Sons of Serendip, he hopes that his journey will help to inspire others to follow their dreams.

Cordaro Rodriguez was born in Charlotte, NC. He began teaching himself piano at the age of 10 and became well-versed in several other instruments as well as in music production. He has produced music for several well-known international artists. After graduating from Princeton in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, he spent a year volunteering as an English teacher in Ecuador. He then attended Boston University School of Law where he received his Juris Doctor degree in 2012.  At Boston University he serendipitously reconnected with his childhood friend, Kendall Ramseur, and met his future bandmates — Mason Morton and Micah Christian. As a member of Sons of Serendip, Cordaro is very grateful to have the opportunity to pursue his love for music.

All 4 One Interview | AfterBuzz TV’s Concert Experience

AFTERBUZZ TV – AfterBuzz TV’s The Concert Experience is a long form interview series featuring musicians and music personality discussing their media and tours as well as their thoughts, passions and journeys. In this episode host Jason Ikeler and Heather Joy Smith interviews the band All 4 One.

Dubbed the “Dukes of R&B” by several internet sources, All-4-One’s hit “I Swear” won a Grammy Award in 1995 for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal and enjoyed an eleven-week run at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and a seven-week run at No. 2 in the UK Singles Chart. It has been named by ASCAP as one of the greatest love songs of the 20th Century.[citation needed] It was also nominated for Song Of The Year, as was the single Top 5 smash hit “I Can Love You Like That.” The group was popular before the No. 1 success of “I Swear,” as their previous single “So Much in Love” (originally a No. 1 US hit for The Tymes in 1963) had reached No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier in the year. Other hits include “She’s Got Skillz”, “These Arms”, “Beautiful as U”, “I Will Be Right Here” and “Someday” (the title single from the Disney animated feature The Hunchback of Notre Dame).

A rift between their independent label, Blitzz Records, and their major label, Atlantic Records, led to the group leaving Atlantic Records as well as Blitzz Records after the release of the album On and On in 1999. The shift in labels left the group in limbo for a few years as they contemplated their next move. In 2001, the follow-up album, A41, was released on AMC Records yielding, “Beautiful As U,” a Top 20 hit on the Radio & Records Adult Contemporary chart. The group’s 2004 album, Split Personality, was given an Asia-only release, and subsequently gave them Asian hits with “Someone Who Lives in Your Heart” and “I Just Wanna Be Your Everything.” For much of the 2000s All-4-One has spent their time touring South East Asia, in cities such as Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul, Bangkok, Shanghai, Sydney and Perth Australia.

In 2009, All-4-One released No Regrets on the Peak Records/Concord Music Group label. Reviews on the record have garnered an overwhelming response with some reviewers claiming No Regrets is a “career album for All-4-One” The album was largely created in-house, with the group doing the writing for the album, and Jamie Jones production company, The Heavyweights, doing a lot of the production work. The CD produced an Urban Adult Contemporary hit entitled “My Child”.

In June 2015, Billboard.com premiered the first single “Baby Love”, from All-4-One’s 20th Anniversary Album, Twenty

Performing in Los Angeles with friend and guitarist Kenji Chan (Bruno Mars), Tara is ready for her distinct voice to be heard.

“I’ve been working with musicians on this album who have been friends from the very beginning, and above all: they have always believed in me.” Ross King, a correspondent with the BBC, VH1, and KTLA says, “Tara Macri creates a fantastic blend of pop music that leaves me begging for more!” Using an effortless and impassioned voice, with songwriting skills developed by years of tickling the piano, with her trusty guitar close at hand, the singer, guitarist, and pianist has crafted a debut album of timeless pop music; directly from the heart.

Karmin is an American hip hop duo consisting of Amy Renee Heidemann [born April 29, 1986 (age 28)] and Nicholas Louis “Nick” Noonan [born April 27, 1986 (age 28)]. The name of the band is a portmanteau made from the Latin word carmen meaning “song” (also a Spanish female name), and the word karma, making the name Karmin.

The YouTube sensation Amy and Nick are known for their unique covers of popular songs such as Look at Me Now, Super Bass, and Party Rock Anthem.Following the success of their covers, they were signed in 2011 to Epic Records, which was relaunched under L.A. Reid. In May 2012, Karmin released their debut EP, Hello, which spawned the singles “Brokenhearted” and “Hello” and received mixed reviews. “Brokenhearted” reached the top 20 in the US Billboard Hot 100 charts, and the top 10 in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdom, while “Hello” reached number one on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Songs chart in the United States. In March 2014, the duo released their debut album, Pulses, to moderate commercial and critical reception. The album’s lead single, “Acapella“, charted in the top 10 in Australia and New Zealand, and achieved moderate success in the United States. The duo left Epic Records in the middle of 2014 and has since released music independently. Their second album Leo Rising is scheduled to be released somewhere in fall 2015.

Karmin is currently managed by Berklee College of Music graduate Nils Gums (’06), who founded the artist development and management firm, The Complex Group, Inc. alongside fellow Berklee alumnus, Matt Maltese and USC Film School graduate, Eric Zimmermann. Rolling Stone named Karmin’s lead singer Amy as the winner of “Women Who Rock” contests.
